    On my 01 Sierra, the nut going from the clutch to the pulley on for the fan is stuck. I have tried everything from letting PBR sit on it, to a crescent wrench and a hammer. Nothing i seem to do gets this damn thing loose.

    :dunno:Any help would be hot right about now!

    You can also try bumping it with an air chisel. About the 2:30 mark

    It only takes the tiniest amount of movement for it to free up. I bet it works.
